In a year which has already seen bumper releases like Elden Ring launch, and with big titles like Saints Row and Starfield on the horizon, you’re going to need to beef up your storage space with an external SSD. This Western Digital Black 2TB external SSD will not only save you the agonising dilemma of choosing which games to keep and which games get cast off into digital oblivion, but it’ll also save you $90.

Assuming an average file size of 36GB per game, this SSD can store up to 50 games. With the size of some of the upcoming PS5 games, it’s going to take a chunky storage solution to ensure you’ve got the space to run them all, and at 33% off, this is one of the best external SSDs that you’ll find right now.

It’s not just about the storage space, either. Loading your games from an external SSD can help them to run faster too, with accelerated speeds getting as high as 900MB/s. This can help you to avoid having to wait through long loading screens and enduring painful lag during intense moments.

Whether you’re an Xbox enthusiast or a PlayStation pro, you’ll find that this WD External SSD works just fine with the current and previous gen models of either console, as well as PC. Heck, if you’re part of the golden elite who own both consoles and play on the PC too, you could use this as storage for your whole cross-platform library.
